Comments:
I do not have an image of the reverse of this bookmark, and do not know how it is signed.
In many respects though, the design of this bookmark is identical to that of Caldicott's oca60 - A Prosperous (image of Christmas) And A Happy New Year, as to assume the bookmark above is also by Caldicott.

If it is by Caldicott, then this design was registered on 13 November 1862, and Godden also referred to the title in his narrative.
